it was a beautiful event

The June 28th 6th Annual SchoolsRule event was a wonderful evening and thanks to the generosity of the hundreds of guests who showed their belief in the importance of supporting quality public education, this year’s Raise the Paddle raised nearly $100,000.

You can still help us reach our fundraising goal of $1,000,000, by making an online donation today.

Thank You To Our Generous Sponsors
